LIFESTYLE & GAMING : June Goals

Hello everyone, 
So I am writing this post a few days early due to the fact that the Beauty Brawl is about to start on here and for ten days, its gonna be nothing but beauty. 

Its time to share my goals for June!
I'm going to set six .... 

But there is a difference, I am splitting Lifestyle and Gaming into two videos! 
1) I want to have a picnic.
I love the outside and as I write this its hammering it down with heavy rain. 
But recently the weather has been really nice so I'd like to have a little picnic with Luke in one of the local parks. 
2 ) I want to get as far as I can on Bloodbourne. 
I was asked to do this one by Luke, my partner. 
He's always wanted me to play this game and he thinks trying to complete it would be too much. 
So I'm gonna play it as much as I can and try not to rage quit. 

3) I want to paint our bathroom 
I need to get this done as its needs thew nice weather to dry with.
Again I should point out that its really bad weather out there at the moment...... but …

LIFESTYLE : A Tidy Home Equals.....

Image
Hi guys, 
So I spent the majority of my bank holiday weekend doing something that I thought that I would never do. 
I have completely decluttered every room and have had a Spring Clear out. 
 What I actually wanted to do was to write a load of blog posts, film some videos and do some University work. But you know what they say, a tidy working environment is a god send and very important. 
I blame the type of Youtube videos that I have been watching.
 I am very much into two Youtubers when it comes to home design. 
Kate La Vie and Marzia... they both have a very clean and minimal style and it is something that I have been trying to do too. I will link two of my favourites below : 
Kate La Vie 



Marzia (skip to about eight mins in)



My problem is that I have a relatively small fat with little storage, but I did manage to get rid of alot of junk that was everywhere. 
Their is alot of decorating ahead of us, but I think the real challenge will be keeping this place in this condition when we come back…

LIFESTYLE : Goodwood Racing!

Image
Hello everyone, 
I hope that you are having a good Bank Holiday weekend. 
On Saturday, I got to go on a work trip and do something that was a little bit different and a little outside of my comfort zone. 
Through my job, I got the chance to go to the Goodwood racecourse in Chichester on the south coast of England. 
It was s chance to meet people and a chance for Luke and I to do something that we have never done before as a couple. 
Before I went I made 40 cakes... 20 devil food cake cupcakes and 20 vanilla cupcakes with strawberry icing.  Cakes are a great way to break the ice and also I seem to be developing a little reputation as a baker. 
(The below picture for some reason attracted 185 likes on Instagram.... no idea why though...) 




When we got there the weather was grey and cold, but by the time we left it was glorious sunshine. I wore a lovely blue lacy dress (as I wasn't sure of the dress code...) and I just wish that I had taken tights with me. 



There were seven races in total, we…

YOUTUBE : A Little Catch up

Image
Hello Everyone, 
So I thought that I would write a little post with the latest uploads to the two Youtube channels. 
I think that with me now prewriting posts, I don't really have the same opportunities to sneak them in anymore. 
That might be a good thing, I dunno.... I have noticed that I tend not to veer off subject as much as I used to. Except now. 
Anyway I recently published this video to the main channel... 
It is the footage from my April Lifestyle and Gaming Goals. 



On the gaming Channel - I have the first part of the Corfu Footage.

 We played Pokemon Go and you can see some of the scenery 



I have also put this version of the April goals up - it only focuses on the gaming ones though. 
There is extended footage of  game play from Horizon Zero Dawn and The Last Guardian 
** EDIT** - 
Two more videos have also gone live since I wrote this post:
There is also the footage from Corfu : 


And a silly Mario Kart Video that Luke and I recorded together! 



So thats it for now! 
For those wat…

BEAUTY : My Holiday Must Haves

Image
Hi Everyone, 
So as I have just returned from Holiday, I thought that I would share some holiday essentials that really saved me in Corfu. 
I should say that the heat was humid and very sunny. It was rather hot on most of the days and the products had to work along side it. 


Product one - Superdrug's tea tree face wipes. I get really funny about makeup removal abroad. I have a whole manner of liquid based products that I use at home. However when it comes to going on holiday, I want a staple in my case that will do the  job and treat my skin.
 I picked these up for a pound and I wasn't disappointed. You can really feel the face wipe toning and cleansing the skin. The smell is fairly strong and if you don't like it, thats the only real down side. 
Product two - Superdrug's Mojito Fizz Bath and Shower gel. I thought that this would be a safe purchase as you never know if you are getting a bath or a shower abroad. I love the lime smell of this product, its so refreshing.
 I als…

GAMING : The Last Guardian Review

Image
Hello Everybody, 
Time for a Little Game Review. 
So today, I will be reviewing one of my now favourite games... The Last Guardian. 
I was so hyped for this game prior to its release and it certainly was a long time coming. 


Luke bought it for me as a Christmas present and I couldn't wait to play with it so I opened it early. Sorry Luke. 
The first thing that hit me is how beautiful the game is and how amazing the graphics are. 
If you read my gaming posts on here, then you know that this its the one thing that I alway finds draws me in...
I equate the feeling as the same as being put in a movie. 
I should probably dsisclaim that I am a massive animal person and this game really drew upon that. 
So the Premise of the game is simple, you (the boy) have woken up next to this massive Hybrid beast Trico. 
You have to work together, overcome your differences and escape together. 
You soon find out how you got to be together and how your fates are intertwined.  
I love that as you look after Trico …

BEAUTY : April and May Empties

Image
Hello Everyone, 
It's time for the Monthy Favourites and empties.
However, as I have been on Holiday, for this month only, I have decided to split the post. 
Basically, I have too much to say and I don't want a super long boring post. 

So this month's offerings are : 



Product one - Veet In shower Hair Removal cream for sensitive skin - I was a little worried to try this product again. 
I tried it years ago and ended up with a reaction on my leg. However I did a patch test and it was fine so I decided to use it for holiday. 
I used it the day I went away (after studying the bottle very close) and it was great. My legs have never been smoother. 
It has a light simple scent that lasts for a couple of days, The effect from the actual cream lasted me a week and the hair that grew back wasn't stubble it was light and soft. I will be repurchasing. 
Product two - OGX Coconut Water Shampoo and Conditioner - I have reviewed these before I love them. Nice and light on my hair with a great…

QUIZ : 400 Posts and Still Going!

Hi Everyone,
So this post is a big one... Number 400! 
To mark this occasion, I have decided to do a fun quiz. 
It's called the 50 Questions That I've Never Been Asked! 
So I'm just going to get stuck into it:
1. What’s your favorite candle scent?
I really like the Pink Snowflake scent or the Mixed spice Yankee Candle scents 

2. What female celebrity do you wish was your sister?

Katy Perry, she seems like such a female boss 

3. What male celebrity do you wish was your brother?

Chris Pratt. I really love his sense of humour 

4. How old do you think you’ll be when you get married?

This changes from time to time. I know that I have met the person that I want to marry but the time isn't right at the moment. I'd like to be married by the time I'm 30 I guess. But Marriage isn't the be all and end all. So if it doesn't happen thats fine too. 

5. Do you know a hoarder?

Nope, I mean I seem to collect knives and forks in my bag....
6. Can you do a split?
Nope haha

7. How old were…
